    41 Lovely Things For Your Home That You'll Never Believe Are From Ikea

    So pretty, and so accessible!

Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. This barrel-shaped glass vase that's beautiful basically all on its own. It's great as a vase, but also makes a wonderful home for terrariums or air plants. Cut your plant stems really short for a denser arrangement, or dip in some long-stemmed foliage and allow it to drape gracefully over the edges for a more dramatic effect.

    This particular design was created in collaboration with professional florists, so you know it's a great purchase.

    Get it at Ikea Canada for $5.99.

    2. This rattan basket that's a pretty and eco-friendly alternative to plastic containers. Use it for your sewing supplies, office odds and ends, or even smaller kids' toys. Each one is made by hand, too!

    Ikea Canada / Via ikea.com

    Don't be fooled by the seemingly-random weave. This type of construction requires a lot of skill, and it means that your basket is completely unique.

    Get it at Ikea Canada for $12.99.

    3. This mirror with a bevelled frame that doubles as a teensy (but handy) shelf for your favourite items. The beautiful walnut veneer blends in with just about every decor style, too.

    Ikea Canada / Via ikea.com

    It's also loaded with secret little features, like a safety film that prevents glass from spilling everywhere if it ever breaks, and a special finish that makes it suitable for high-humidity spaces (like bathrooms).

    Get it at Ikea Canada for $69.99.

    4. These tanned leather handles that can be easily attached to any drawer or cabinet. Swapping out handles and pulls is the fastest (and cheapest) way to give your furniture a facelift!

    Ikea Canada / Via ikea.com

    The leather is super soft to the touch (great for homes with klutzy kids that always bonk themselves on everything), and will acquire a lovely patina over time.

    5. This acacia wood stool that's the multi-tasking seating of your dreams. It's all about the details with this one: Plastic feet protect it from wet surfaces, while the braided seat cradles bums like nobody's business.

    The best part? You can take it outside, too!

    Get it at Ikea Canada for $27.99.

    6. This black marble mortar and pestle that's perfect for making salad dressing, pesto, or guacamole. The heaviness of the marble makes smashing ingredients super easy. And you can even flip it upside down and use the cupped base for smaller herbs, like peppercorns.

    The ridged bowl is also amazing at mashing tender basil leaves, or emulsifying garlic.

    Get it at Ikea Canada for $15.99.

    7. This pine-top stool that's completely adjustable, and makes for great additional seating when you have more guests on the way and someone JUST claimed the last chair. Each leg can be individually adjusted, too, so uneven floors are a problem of the past.

    9. This set of five glass containers with cork lids that'll finally give you a neat little solution to all those loose cotton swabs and bobby pins. I use mine as an easy way to store jewelry, so I never have to rummage around in a huge box to find one tiny pair of earrings.

    Ikea Canada / Via ikea.com

    Each container is designed to be stacked on top of the others, so you can arrange and rearrange however you like! The set also comes with a cork tray to help you keep the containers organized.
